  7. Pump priming is the action taken to stimulate an economy, usually during a recessionary period, through government spending and interest rate and tax reductions. The term pump priming is derived from the operation of older pumps – a suction valve had to be primed with water so that the pumpwould function properly.

  8. Muhammed Fethullah Gülen[8] (born 27 April 1941) is a Turkish preacher,[9] Religious Leader imam,[9][10] writer,[11] and political figure.[12] He is the founder of the Gülen movement (known as Hizmet meaning servicein Turkish), which is 3 to 6 million strong volunteer based movement mostly focused on the education, interfaith dialogue providing primary and secondary education, in Turkey (in which business entities and foundations have been closed down by the Turkish government by the thousands in 2017)

  9. John Maynad Keynes -A polish philosopher, economist; he gave several theories that how capitalist and state economy, both mixed well ,can promote development and growth in any territory, provided we only choose the best from the Adam Smith’s: The wealth of nations and Karl Marx’s: Das Kapital and The communist manifesto.

  10. The conditions of Mumbai city will decrease continuesly as population is increasing rapidly due to continues inflow of people from other states.,,. Its mainly because other states are failed to create jobs in their respective states.

  11. Emerging Economies rely heavily on dollar denominated debt. As trade tensions increase so does the default risk on those loans. If Turkey defaults on their loans, it is going to reflect that other EM's are also facing macroeconomic headwinds. Thus, all EM's cost of capital will increase, foreign investors will exit EM's. The coupon increase on US treasury is also one of the reasons why EM's are facing currency depreciation. My concern is at 402 B USD, we should not be very confident. Oil imports will take away the benefits derived from lower currency. Furthermore, we have been receiving great discounts on oil from Iran which might end. Hence, a 402 B USD foreign reserve may deplete in no time. Also, our major exports Software, ITes is under pressure if this sector faces any headwinds it will become difficult for India to sustain at the current level of foreign reserves. I look forward to hear your in-depth analysis of the same.
